Cranberry Tri-Rivers Rail Trail

Think twice

July, 2020 by donliss

Despite the lovely location, this trail should be considered unusable, or at least unbikable. Essentially all grass and not really passable. I hope it gets rebuilt. Perfect place.

Barnum Rail-Trail

Not typical rail trail - more suitable for mountain bikes

July, 2020 by jkhiser

Rode on 29 Jul 2020. This is a rugged trail, really need mountain bike with off road tires, etc. And it is hard to reach. Watch Google - it will try to take you through closed road through the COE land at the reservoir, leading to a 20 mile back track. There is no easy way to get here. If you can handle the rough conditions, the river views are fantastic. But a long drive for a 4 mile out and back ride.

Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (L&R Trail)

Good for a short stroll

July, 2020 by aarronward01

The trail isn’t completed, so right now it’s just a nice sidewalk in a quiet neighborhood. Once it extends I’m sure it’ll be awesome. If you’re looking for a short walk and some fresh air when you’re already in Lewisburg, it’s worth it.

Panhandle Trail

Panhandle Trail

July, 2020 by dreed14398

I go on this trial when I get the chance too. My dog loves it. It is a beautiful trail and there are friendly people. Very well kept up with and it’s beautiful when the sun shines.

Panhandle Trail

Awesome ride

July, 2020 by milgler

We rode the bulgar to Walker Mills section today so now we have rides the entire trail. Nice surface except one section that was really rough in spots. Was downhill all the way to Walker Mills so ride back was not as fast. Will definitely be riding this trail again.

Great American Rail-Trail

Great ride today

July, 2020 by vlc9802

We rode this trail from Toulon to Princeville today. It was great! The path was very good. It is mostly shaded. Excellent. We stopped in Wyoming on our way back for lunch. Ate at 111 Coffee Shop. Don’t be fooled, this is NOT just a coffee shop. The lunch was delicious. And it is decorated all with bikes! Perfect for us bikers. And check out the bathroom. Cute!!! Can’t wait to do more of the route from Princeville going south.

Cranberry Tri-Rivers Rail Trail

Trail is not marked well, not maintained, overgrown to point it is almost unusable.

July, 2020 by image1studio

Trail is not marked well, not maintained, overgrown to point it is almost unusable. Went in late July 2020 but discovered the train is so overgrown it is useless. These trails should be maintained since there is little to do in this areal

Marion County Trail (MCTrail)

Great Bike Trail

July, 2020 by jbrewer0226

We took the whole family biking on this trail today. It is a very nice pathway that is paved. Our kids range from 1 up to 5. Our 5 year old was able to ride her tricycle and the 2 smaller kids rode in a pull behind trailer. My 5 year old was able to ride her tricycle for 2 miles with some stops.

North Bend Rail Trail

Could be a great ride...

June, 2020 by jtkilcoin

I biked the North Bend Railtrail this past week. My summary:

Happy Valley to Petroleum: trail quite manageable, however some areas have gravel that is too large for a rail-trail, but not quite as large as comment below.

Cairo-Ellenboro: very nice, smooth

Westbound Wolf Summit- Ellenboro: first 16mi to Smithburg characterized by very soft surface with numerous large vehicle ruts in the trail—very little gravel-based portions. Would recommend for only the most hardy of bikers.

Smithburg- Pennsboro: smooth and in good condition

Pennsboro Tunnel (tunnel 8)– MM36: a total disaster—gravel the size of rail ballast. Whoever decided to cover the trail with ballast-sized gravel has never ridden a bike on such! Remainder to Ellenboro manageable.

West Fork Trail

Beautiful flora but not good for biking

June, 2020 by jimwaite03

I biked on this trail in August 2019. The flora is highly varied and very beautiful. However, the trail is poor for biking. It was miserable biking on a hybrid, and I do not think it would be any more enjoyable on a mountain bike. The trail surface is not mostly ballast. The surface varies from ballast to deep mud to uncut vegetation. In some sections I was riding through thick grass and weeds. The poor trail surface forced me to keep my eyes glued to the trail making it hard to enjoy the beautiful flora. This trail was in better shape years ago. Durbin does not have an attractive Main Street corridor. It is depressed and has few amenities.

Wheeling Heritage Trails

Great trail but don't ride a road bike.

June, 2020 by mdrennard

I started at the southern-most part of the trail (48th St & Water St) and rode north. Despite the fact that the trail was paved, there were a lot of cracks and bumps in the pavement. After about 15 minutes I wished I brought my mountain bike rather than my road bike. Once I got through the downtown Wheeling area and north, the pavement smoothed out. I got as far north as Warwood and had to turn around because the weather was beginning to get bad. If you plan on riding this trail, be aware that it is rather bumpy for a road bike with no suspension.

Deckers Creek Trail

lots of elevation and beautiful scenery

June, 2020 by ryan.strother

This trail probably has the most elevation I’ve ridden on a trail yet! From Morgantown to Reedsville increases elevation more than the other way. It was a little rockier than I would have liked in certain areas.
